The Jubilee! radio show was broadcast on the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) and featured "Negro" performers.

The dates on these files, show numbers, as well as some performer's names, came from the Jubilee! transcription pages by Carl Hallstrom & Bo Scherman: http://home.swipnet.se/dooji/jubilee.htm


The Radio Gold Index http://www.radiogoldindex.com DB was helpful too.

Any typo or error is mine. :D

Subject: Where is Jack Benny?Harry the Hipster Gibson?
Two weeks ago I listened to a Jubilee featuring Jack Benny & Rochester Eddie Anderson & since you changed the list the episode is missing. What happened to it??? Where is the episode I listened to with Harry the Hipster Gibson???

if you put your mouse over the file link in the files section you can see that the name of the file includes the dates.

Subject: Looking for V-Discs?
The ultra hard-to-find radio programs on V-Discs are here. I don't know if they are all here or not but they were great shows made for our servicemen overseas in World War II and were supposed to be destroyed after playing but someone who posted these 93 shows (about 30 minutes each) has more than I have ever been able to find. The only difficulty with a file this large is you (I) can only download 6 files at a time, but this is a great source. I love the Archive.org. My only qualm is that I'm such a pig and the files I want to upload and download are sometimes too big. Daddy G's Memory Music
